Once Upon a Wish

Once Upon a Wish by [Ferguson, Danyelle]

I'm a fan of Ms. Ferguson!

This book is decidedly different in voice, tone, style, and pacing than her other sweet romances. That is not a bad thing. While her previous books have a sassy and spicy swagger to them (which I love) , Once Upon a Wish is a slow simmering burn.

The imagery of the locale, the occasional French word, and the constant consumption of high caliber french hot chocolate, transport you to the lovely setting of La Rochelle in France.

The characters are charming, engaging, and well fleshed out. It seems easy to imagine having a chat with Delphine at the cafe or meeting with Jean Luc to see what magic he can work on your social media prescence. Both characters have their own obstacles to overcome in their personal lives as well as finding a way to walk a path together.

So grab your sadly watered down American version of hot chocolate, a cozy blanket, and get lost in France for awhile.


Be careful what you wish for . . .

Delphine Baudry wished to be a best-selling author, but now instead of celebrating and jumping into her next novel, she's frozen with fear. What if she turns out to be a one-hit-wonder? What if all her new fans hate the next book? To top it all off, she can't even discuss the situation with her favorite brainstorming partner, her mother, who is losing her memory to Alzheimer's. Taking a cue from some teens tossing Euros into a fountain, Delphine gives into some whimsy and wishes for her next book plot.

Jean-Paul Chassériau wished to start an online marketing company in La Rochelle. Now the real work begins. Feeling pressure to live up to his father's name in traditional marketing, Jean-Paul has a million ideas but no clients. When he finds a funky old Franc lodged between cobblestones near a fountain, there was only one thing to do. Make a wish.

When their coins collide, Delphine and Jean-Paul's wishes become intertwined, changing the course of their futures, and teaching them that wishes are sometimes fulfilled in unexpected ways.
